Here are a few random things that made my week special.
For me, moments of indulging isn’t really a box of chocolates per se, being that I have a very low to no raw sugar diet. However, this week my life did get a bit sweeter by taking a break to delight in fresh cherries.
With so much of the weather being up and down (mostly a heaping of warmth), it was nice to refuel my palate with refreshing bites from a fine bowl of sweet cherries. Plus the benefits of eating cherries aren't too shabby either: high in potassium, fortified with vitamins, great dose of antioxidants, low calories, etc. Read more here.
Nothing says opulence like these stylish and sleekly designed Marc Jacobs beauty items. Appearance may not be everything in our daily lives, but for anyone who appreciates chic product and package design, they know better. Have you ever been captivated by a bottle of wine or a perfume bottle based on aesthetics alone?
Pristine packaging with a quality product is everything! Designed by the creatives of Established, the highly anticipated Marc Jacob’s 2014 fall beauty collection will launch next month in August, firstly available in NYC at Sephora stores, but actually now online for Sephora beauty insiders. The fall line includes the Twinkle Eyeshadow Stick, Kiss Pop Colour Stick, and the Smart Wand Tinted Face Stick. Stay tuned for more items from Marc Jacobs cosmetics coming soon.
The Winning Pool:
Unless you aren’t into sport at all, if you have some form of internet or have been watching the World Cup, then you’ve likely heard about the win by Germany. Although, bittersweet for a few cousins, I think between my co-workers and immediate family, festivities might still be happening. Since my predictions were correct, I ended up winning a prize bundle from our little FIFA2014 pool at work. There were only two of us in total that won. Perhaps, I will treat myself to a pair of shoes or something soon. Did you watch the game?
With wedding season being present, I have been helping a friend with a few different concepts for her reception. As seen below: Inspiration from decorating books, and charming miniature boxes of wedding tokens, I finally found my necklace that I thought I had misplaced, and my mini travelling trunk filled with sewing notions for those "on-the-go" crafting and alteration moments.
